This post is simply one of the best-constructed rebukes of those who voted for Donald Trump knowing his presidentially fatal flaws. It is civil, yet it pierces like an unsharpened knife.
A friend sent me a Facebook message and told me that I needed to read a post by one of our mutual friends. You must send it to your Facebook, email, Tumblr, etc. friends.
Here is Tracy Raymond Brown's Facebook post.
I have read many posts this week from conservative friends and conservative friends of friends in which they are trying to justify voting for the occupant last November. Many are writing that while they did not like him, as conservatives, he was their default vote.
If you want to claim the belief of a conservative he could not have been a default vote.
What has he ever done without lining his pockets with taxpayer money? You knew well before the election that many many small businesses went broke because after performing services for his entities he would not pay them and when they tried through legal means to collect what was due, rather than pay, he out lawyered them.
Prior to the election you also knew his beliefs about women and minorities. By the way, those are not the beliefs of conservatives. If you think they are, you are hanging out with bigots, not conservatives.
Maybe your beliefs as a conservative come from your religious beliefs. Maybe you thought it was okay to vote for him because so many religious leaders stood hand in hand with him. Do you really listen to their sermons? If you are Christian, which part of the Bible do you listen with?
I do not believe you really voted as a conservative. I think when faced with a tough decision, you just took what you thought was the easy way and put party over country.
He is not your default. He is your fault.
I could not have chosen any better words.
